#TBR126 The DNA results special
Jerry Springer, Jeremy Kyle, Sally Jessie.... every time that they did a DNA special, you had to watch. Well this is Tall Boy Radio's take on those special and there's a lot at stake! Beans traced the lost branch to his family tree and Beau took a trip to England based on that information. Could you imagine if that was wrong? We find out, thanks to the good folks at ancestry.com and their DNA testing. There's plenty of other stuff too : A DNA quiz, looking into our background, a new variety of the Duchesse and we close out with some music. We also plug Beans and his daughter Matilda's new YouTube project - check it out here (especially if you love Lego) : https://youtu.be/VGLIGr4FsAA You can get 20% off your order at ollys-ollys.com just by listening to this podcast.

#TBR125 Double Denim Company
You can't beat a good covers band and Double Denim Company are a GOOD covers band. Based in South Cheshire, they play classic 70s and 80s rock. We were fortunate enough to be joined by their Lead Singer Tim Hodgins, their lead Guitarist Jon Ayres and their drummer Justyn "Joppa" Peake to talk about some of their experiences. This episode is a little more chaotic than our usual output but that just made it a bit more fun. They talk us through some funny stories, headlining the local music festival, and some gigs that didn't go to plan. Nothing was off limits with these guys! Be sure to grab yourself a cold one, kick back and rock out 🤟 - The opening music is "London Bayou" by Oscar Albis Rodriguez and the closing music is "BDS" by Lewis Pickford. - Did you know that you can get 20% off your order at ollys-ollys.com just by listening to this podcast?

#TBR124 That's the spirit!
We were joined by Jason - a man of many interests... a model railway enthusiast, an Internet DJ and a Paranormal investigator. The main focus of this episode is his investigations into the other realm. He tells us about faked photography, real life experiences, spectral voices picked up on his equipment... and then there's his own home which is still inhabited by the previous owners who have passed away... and that's all before we get to a story of an out of body experience.

#TBR123 Planet of the Monkeys
We look at the 6 most likely reasons that Humans came to inhabit Planet Earth. Whether you believe, we ruled by the serpent people, placed here by a God or aliens or that we desecneded from Monkeys (I know it's Apes but there's already a film with that title) we examine and rank the most likely reasons.... and then bid good wishes to our reptilian overlords (kidding). This week of all weeks, Beans decided to review Moth, Bloody and Nio cocktails... so go grab yourself a cold one, kick back and try and make some sense of it all.

#TBR122 The Railwaymen
We were joined by fellow Podcaster Mark Birtles from the Railwaymen podcast to talk about his football club Crewe Alex... but not in the sense that you may expect. Mark has had his struggles with his mental health and it lead him in 2019 to try and take his life. His love for his football club and the fact they are a smaller team with great ties to the local community means that could reach out to him and quite literally save his life. This is a fantastic story and we hope that you take the time to listen to it. The opening music is "London Bayou" by Oscar Albis Rodriguez and the closing music is "BDS" by Lewis Pickford.

#TBR121 Todd and Johnny : Reloaded
We were joined by Todd and Johnny (from the Todd Orndorf On The Toddcast podcast) to try out Reload Rub's Magnum. We'd held off trying this for 6 months (or had we??) And tried it for the 1st time (first time, really?) on this episode. If you're bothered by eating noises you'll be pleased to know they've been edited out. There's some serious talk about politics which may offend some snowflakes in amongst a whole load of laughs and a lot of talking balls! Go grab yourself a cold one, kick back and let's wrastle.

#TBR120 Anon : Music, truth and chaos
We were joined all the way from Pittsburgh, PA by Anon Mess Age Sage - a musician and creative mind. He talks us through the thinking process behind his music and how he has turned negatives into positives. His music - not to everyone's taste by his own admission - is chaotic but also cathartic. It's a freedom of artistic impression. With comparisons to fellow Yinzer Andy Warhol, we had a fascinating and very frank conversation that you're sure to take something away from.

#TBR119 It's Pub Time at Tall Boy Radio
We hand over the controls of the Tall Boy Radio Monster Machine to the Boys from Illinois - Ryan, Brad and Dick from the PubTime Podcast and they take it skywards. This is a collaboration episode... it's our 100th since Gaz and Andy joined so it seemed right to do something different. We go 5 for 5 on British Bands before discussing how powerful is Elon Musk? The main topics centre around the Dark side of the moon and whether aliens exist. It's a little longer than our usual episodes so go grab yourself a couple of cold ones, kick back and enjoy!

#TBR118 A handful of nuts
We take a glance (minus Andy due to a scheduling conflict and not his either!!) at what's been going on in the world of Sport. We look at Tyson Fury's uppercut, Granit Xhaka's goal against Man United and look at the sporting superlatives and hyperboles that the media have attached to those. We ask Gaz - will Everton get relegated? His answer may surprise you. We look at Boxing out of the ring with the incident involving Iron Mike Tyson on a plane and then onto the world of darts and possibly the greatest nickname in the sport... all with plenty of left turns and Gaz and Dave's tips to taking a penalty. We finish off by asking some moral questions which leads to a story about a lady called Doreen in a dressing gown. Don't miss out... go grab yourself a cold one, kick back and enjoy.

#TBR116 A Texan Cowboy's European Vacation
We were joined by Beans' cousin from across the pond, Beau and by Beans' brother Jon to talk about Beau's recent visit to the UK. Ever since Beau found out he was related to Beans and Jon he decided he was going to visit England for the first time. We talked about his experience meeting up with the boys and their Father, Kris, the trip up to Edinburgh, how the UK differs to the US and how come he's never heard of marzipan.

#TBR115 It's Happy Hour at Tall Boy Radio
We were delighted to be joined by Mike, Tabby and Caleb from the Happy Hour Podcast out of Louisville, Kentucky. We've guested on their podcast and Tabby appeared on the episode that we did with the Designated Quizzers. Our good pal Bill had an idea for an episode where we talk about the dumb stuff that we've done and ended up doing ourselves a mischief... and we thought why not involve our pals from across the pond and get them to join in on the fun. Listener discretion warning : If you don't like hearing about knees getting mangled, this episode may not be for you. We couldn't get them on and not talk about their Guinness World Record attempt for the longest podcast and we were absolutely honoured to be asked to join them on the opening slot of their attempt. These are great guys and we hope you enjoy this episode and if you haven't already, go and check out their podcast! Go grab yourself a cold Twisted Tea, kick back and enjoy!

#TBR114 Current affHAIRS
We were joined by Dave and we welcomed Gaz back on to the podcast and he had a lot of things on his mind.... Was Will Smith or Chris Rock the villain at their Oscars debacle? We've all seen Gareth Bale's comments about the media, just how accountable are they? The sad and untimely passing of Taylor Hawkins. Should their be an age cap on heads of state and monarchs? ...and then there's female swimming and right out of the bat, there's an apology for a crass joke about the situation from a dude who told everyone to be kind at the start of the episode. All this and much much more so go grab yourself a cold one, kick back and enjoy. The opening music is "London Bayou" by Oscar Albis Rodriguez and the closing music is "BDS" by Lewis Pickford.

There's no Gaz again this week and this time it's down to Covid19. Beans and Andy shoot the breeze about a whole host of topics. Andy's new Motorbike has had it's maiden voyage, will Everton get relegated? Will Man U or Arsenal make the top 4? Is Boxing's only point of interest the novelty fights?

#TBR112 Well, well, well, what do we have BEER then?
There's no Gaz this week as we're joined by John Nicol aka the Geordie Beed Guy. If you've seen any beer reviews online then you've no doubt seen some of his stuff.

#TBR110 Drunken ramblings part 3
This episode of Tall Boy Radio has literally been 10 years in the making. From when Beans first reached out to Beau to say that he believed they were related to this point where Beau sat down in TBR HQ to record the 1st ever livestreamed episode. There is a crazy amount of ground covered and beer and Whisky consumed and the odd revelation too - turns out Boilermakers are actually quite pleasant.

#TBR109 And on the 8th day God created TBR
Yeah we were struggling for a title for this one. The topics were all over the place so we went for something that wasn't too much to do with the actual episode. There was no Gaz again as he's struggling with his bionic clavicle instead we were joined by Dave to ask some taxing question. We started off with the 3Rs and how important they are or aren't to us. We moved on to talk about the device that you're probably reading this synopsis on - your mobile (cell) phone. How attached are we? Could we give it up? How attached are we to social media? Yes we need it to promote the podcast etcetera... or do we? Where did you find out about this podcast, we'd love to know. Did you find us on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter or through your podcast listening platform of choice? Is Social Media a good thing? Then we talked about the 2 ends of your life : Your childhood. Would you rather your child had your childhood or do we wish we had theirs... and then onto growing old. We all had similar thoughts on this one and probably all different to the thoughts we had on it in our 20s. What could we top off a serious episode like this? Cartoons of course. What were your favourite cartoons growing up. Go grab yourself a cold one and joining us on this meandering ride.

#TBR108 Superbowl, Valentine's and a broken clavicle
Gaz is back.... briefly. He stops by for 20 minutes to let us know that he's OK. Beans and Andy are joined by guest host Dave who'll be with us for the next 2 weeks. Whilst Gaz is with us we talk about the Superbowl and it's iconic halftime show before sharing a few funny Valentine's day stories... and let's not forget stories of 2 broken clavicles!! We move on to the West Ham player Kurt Zouma - and although we make light of a massive flaw in British law, no one finds animal cruelty acceptable, we're just using humour to point a massive irony! There's a little talk on Joe Rogan and England "opening back up". Yeah, this one was all over the place. Go grab a cold one, kick back and try not to break your collarbone!

#TBR107 Designated Quizzers (Plus Tabby) Versus TBR
Gaz misses out on the 2nd anniversary episode of Tall Boy Radio as his broken collarbone is still causing him discomfort. We're joined by Lisa from the Designated Quizzers Podcast and Tabby from the Happy Hour Podcast to take us on in a 20 question quiz shoot-out. The questions aren't about beer but they are bloody hard. They're fall off your chair hard! Stay tuned to the end for a beaut of an outtake.

#TBR106 Tiddy and Shiner takeover
There's no Gaz (Shoulder) or Andy (Hound) tonight but we're back in Tulsa, Oklahoma to chat to Tiddy and Shiner from The Outcasts media group. This episode is very much like an episode of the Tiddy and Shiner show - left-turns-a-plenty. There's plenty of Politics talk, US and UK, plenty of talks about pneumonia, head colds, influenza and.... what's the other on? There's a pinch of NFL talk as we're all rooting for the same team in the Superbowl. We can't visit Oklahoma without talking a little Joe Exotic - it is the year of the Tiger after all... and there's a funny Johnny Simo story too!

There's no Gaz this week as he's had a fall and broken his collarbone. Andy and I were joined by James Pesch, a life coach from Tulsa, Oklahoma. He talks about Neuro Linguistic programming, gives Beans a way of helping stay on his vegetarian path, talks a little about stoicism, drops a whole lot of science on us and explains a little of how our minds work. There's even a little bit of magic thrown in for good fun. You don't want to miss this one. Go grab yourself a cold one (or your favourite Irish Whiskey), kick back and enjoy!

#TBR104 Tall Boy and the Megaman
There's no Andy tonight as he has some family commitments but we are joined all the way from California by the hardest working man in PodcastLand - Megaman aka Stephen Martinez from the Megaman podcast. We took more left turns than a Nascar winner. We started on craft beer before talking about podcasts and what it means to us and why it's such a passion in our lives. We talk abou why we never talk about Covid and politics before talking about Covid and politics. Gaz shares his very unique view on Novak Djockovic before we move on to "Soccer" and the differences between the Premier league and US sports and there's a little pinch of paranormal talk at the end.

#TBR103 Men have Lupus
Lupus. What do you know about it? We barely knew anything and when we looked in to it we were surprised by it's severity. We were joined by Lou of menhavelupus.org to talk candidly about how the illness has affected him. He realised early on that the support isn't there. Rather than retreating- he went out there and set up a help group to help men get the answers and the help they need. We were humbled by his sense of purpose. He talks frankly about misdiagnosis, the stigmas around Lupus and what he is doing to give Men (who are often not diagnosed sometimes through pride) the help they need.

We're buying into that New Year, New me BS. We talk about New Year's revolutions and for one reason or another, we've all decided to make some this year (of sorts). Obviously we get distracted along the way and take left turns towards Eddie 'The Beast' Hall's diet, Boilermakers, what would you call a boilermaker if it were made with gin, Black and Tans (they really are Irish) and much more nonsense besides.

#TBR101 Room 101
We turn an Orwellian nightmare into a bit of fun. Beans, Gaz and Andy each pick 2 things to be disposed of. What does Gaz hate most about football? What cornerstone of society gets Andy fired up? Which part of the ecosystem does Beans have beef with? What else will trigger their anger? In this episode Beans and Gaz disagree over the phrase "living to work". Gaz was actually referring to the rising cost of living meaning people needed to work more to make ends meet, whereas Beans was talking about the phrase in it's literal definition those crazy folks who see work as their purpose for being.... we were talking cross purposes and just wanted to clarify our points.

We talk about our favourite Christmas traditions and how they've instilled in us our love for Christmas and desire to make the festive period special for our children.

We go 5 for 5 with them listing our favourite beers before exploring the world of sports. We look at how NFLUK games differ from games played stateside, Rugby, Cricket and a little bit of "soccer".

#TBR96 Inequality Street
This week it's Gaz's turn to ask the questions... and if you know anything about him, you'll have guessed that they are all sports based. We're joined by our pal Dave to look at inequality in sport. Be that the race debate in Cricket, or whether sportswomen should be allowed to compete against their male counterparts. We consider it all. There's the usual NFL talk and we throw down a challenge to any female podcasters out there who think they can take on the boys of TBR at any sport they fancy.

#TBR95 A digital Dukes of Hazzard
Growing up Beans wished he was Luke Duke. Turns out that dream was a little closer than he thought in that in tracing his American leg of the family tree, he has a cousin Beau. If you listened to episode BDS5, you'll know the back story, if not, you can always go back and listen to Beans does Genealogy. Beau should have joined us at TBR HQ but due to some passport problems he had to join us digitally and share that story from his perspective... and some of the really weird coincidences that are part of this story. There's our regular NFL chat and a little bit of hunting talk which should be interesting for our UK listeners before we ask the important question "Is Andy a viking?"

In this episode, Beans puts the important questions to Gaz and Andy. We look at the top 100 Googled questions so far this year and see if these 2 guys can do a better job than the search engine in dishing out the answers. We've not gone for the mundane, we've picked the stranger questions that have been asked. Can dogs eat bananas? Are unicorns real? Are jellyfish immortal?

#TBR93 - The boys are back in town
The gang are back together and firing on all cylinders. The Reload Rub is ready to be switched again (for the most part). We pitch the 5 beer idea to Gaz - who in his absence has managed to check something off of his bucket list, and it may not be one that you'd predict. There's the usual NFL round-up before we look at climate change : who's doing what and what could or should we be doing differently. All this and much much more.

#TBR92 - Questions and Answers??
There's no Gaz again this week but Beans and Andy welcome Dave the Internet guy back as a guest. He asks us a bunch of questions that don't have a black and white answer, leaving us to get tangled up in grey. Questions like : should nurses be mandated to get the Covid19 vaccination? Should euthanasia we legal in the UK? Is winning the key message to be taught in children's sport? There's the usual NFL round-up and Beans can't resist giving two Man United fans a bit of stick about the Liverpool result before offering to exorcise Dave's Ghoulies.

#TBR90 Spoiler alert : James Bond dies
How about a little bit more Bond for you? Gaz gives his verdict on the "final"? James Bond film and shares a spoiler or 2. There's a couple more questions about where 007 goes from here. In the battle of the plums, Aldi's and Titanic's Plum Porters face off in a taste test - can Beans tell the difference. Andy's Lions appear toothless again as we take a look at our NFL teams. There's a missed opportunity to meet Morrissey, a look at Tyson Fury's win and the current state of Heavyweight Boxing, is Skype new product that answer to the Streaming conundrum, how would we fair on Murder Island - we fear Andy would be perp not victim.

The tops are popped on the Reload Rub and the cook off has begun. This stuff is phenomenal. We need to get this in the UK on a regular basis. It hurt us all but we took a look at how our bet is playing out as the Lions, Steelers and Bears all faltered in week 3. Why is Halloween so popular? We're seeing people talking about it already on social media and we don't understand the fuss. There's an update on our Guinness world record attempts (plural!!) and much much more so go grab yourself a cold one and, kick back and enjoy!

#TBR87 A plan (and a Jackson) is born
Andy is back with Beans and Gaz this week and we see just how close we were to guessing the name of his son. Pretty close as it turns out but should we have been closer? We hear all the tales from our trip to Scotland including Beans learns that although masks are supposed to protect us they can also do us harm and how Gaz enjoyed the train ride so much, he refused to get off. We learnt alot from a trip to Scotland - besides look where you're going whilst putting on a mask and stop looking at your phone when you're at a train station - and if we don't do something different about the real lesson that we learned, then did we really learn anything. A plan is put forward that predictably involves a Guinness World Record attempt. The Reload Rub is portioned out and ready to be cooked on tofu, quorn and.... who are we kidding, it's going on meat!

#TBR86 TBR at the darts
There's no Andy again this week as he does the rather more important job of being a Dad. Beans and Gaz head north to Whitburn in Scotland to check out the World Cup of Disability Darts. Covid may have affected the number of countries that attended but that didn't dampen the spirits or the quality of the darts! We interviewed a number of interesting characters and learned alot about podcasting in the field (sorry for the background noise), darts and more importantly the challenges faced by disabled darts players to be recognised for their achievements and to make it available for everyone. First we spoke to Jed Macphee, inventor of the flexi-board that makes moving the board for standing and wheelchair bound players to compete at the same oche. Next we spoke to Snowy Dyson a bilateral amputee who had competed in various degrees and at an incredibly high standard. He had a lot to say about the issues faced and really made us think about something that, if we're really honest, we had been blind to. We loved his honesty and approach. We spoke to Eddie Bailey about his charity raising for prostate cancer. We spoke to Debbie, a darts player who has travelled aboard to compete in competitions in Malta and Catalonia. Jim Mitchell has done more for disabled darts in Scotland, especially for women, than anyone else. Despite not being disabled himself. He also had an incredible darting collection that was on show in the hotel. Finally we spoke to Scott, one half of Darts-themed family spirits company Double Trouble Drinks who were sponsoring the event a out how they got involved. Enjoy!

#TBR79 - Dave-il's advocate
It's a very different episode of the #TallBoyRadio #Podcast this week. Our old school pal Dave (who built the website for us) comes and asks some difficult questions. He plays Devil's (or Dave-il's) advocate and questions us on stuff around the legal side of consuming alcohol. Whether that's age-related sales, drink-driving or license-related questions. Dave also questions us about when drinking alcohol becomes a problem and recognising the signs. These questions made us look inwardly and assess our own drinking. You might not think this episode is for you, I would say give it a go and ask yourself the same questions. It's a more serious episode but it's a topic we needed to acknowledge if we're going to be responsible podcasters.

The all new and improved #TallBoyRadio #Podcast - the #Beer #Review with a difference. This week we take a look at beers that are just a little bit more expensive that your regular 4 pack. Would you pay it? What's the most you'd be happy to pay? Would you drink a beer out of a squirrel?? We'd love to hear from you guys on this. We also take a look at what defines an #AbbeyAle as well as what qualifies a beer as a #CraftBeer. We take a look at the Belgian Brewery in a legal battle to protect it's water source. There's stories on Meantime brewery making a beer for #RecordStoreDay and a new concept #IndieBeerDay - the beer equivalent of RSD. We hear about people in the States protesting against beers and their record of treatment of the #LGBTQ+ community and conversely the beer companies pulling their adverts from news stations that aren't "woke". There's also the answer to the question "Why did #Brewdog reduce the ABV of it's #ElvisJuice beer?" Go grab yourself a cold one, kick back and enjoy...

Grimbergen open a new brewery for the 1st time in 200 years and there's a look at the #Titanic #Brewery in Burslem, Stoke and their legendary Plum Porter.

There's nothing worse than a good movie with a bad ending... but when the guys in Hollywood nail it, it can be a thing of beauty.

Beans, Gaz and Andy review the first beer from Double Trouble's beer club - the Ally Pale ale... before they crack on with the dumbest idea we've had for a podcast episode yet. Come at me, Bro : The game. You get 8 cards. 6 fighters of mixed ability and 2 wild card weapon cards. 2 players draw a card and discuss who would win the fight with the non-participants have the final say to the outcome... you can then turn the tables and arm the loser with a wildcard weapon and see if you can turn the tide. Points are awarded for winning, probably. Dumb idea, yeah? Good fun though. I guarantee you'll play it at least once. We emailed the makers of Top Trumps. We're yet to hear back. Their loss!

Beans, Gaz and Andy each pick a crime that remains unsolved and break down the case, looking at the information that is known and the reasons why it remains unsolved. Andy takes a look at the Zodiak killer. There's plenty of conjecture around the perpetrator and the complex riddle of clues but no one has been charged with the murders. Beans talks about the only unsolved case of air piracy, that of DB Cooper. Did he survive his dramatic escape? and could a deathbed confession be genuine? Gaz talks about the case of Madeleine McCann. Taken from their holiday home in Portugal after being left unattended by her parents, very little is known about the crime. The focus is now on a German man who seems to be connected to the crime. Will there ever be a definitive conclusion to this case? Go grab yourself a cold one, and help us examine the case files.

The amount of wrestlers that haven't made it to their 40th birthday is scary and many of those that do, don't make it much longer afterwards.

The final part of our 1980s trilogy - the music. There's a difference between 80s music and music of the 1980s. 80s music is cheesy as all hell, of course,.we acknowledge some of it but we focus on the good stuff released then and there really was some great music released in the 1980s (this isn't just an hour of Beans droning on about The Smiths, we promise!)

1980s TV was the golden era of television. TV shows back then were beyond reproach in terms of their enjoyability and quality (Bullseye aside). Weren't they?

It's something that Dave has not only done plenty of but also he organises and promotes comedy in the Warrington area... so much so that his efforts to entertain during lockdown even got a mention in the House of Commons.

#TBR58 - Technology in sport
Technology in sport - does it make it improve or detract? That was the question posed by one of our regular listeners, Daz. Beans, Gaz and Andy do their best to answer that question. We look at a number of sports including Tennis, Rugby, Horse racing, athletics - to name but a few and look at what technology is used and how it works.

#TBR57 - 2 gins and a banana dolphin
What do Beans, Gaz and Andy know about Gin? Very little as it turns out. Fortunately they were joined by the ladies from the Scottish Alchemists podcast to give them a few pointers. We sent them a gin that is made a few miles from us, in Stoke to try and they returned the favour with a 50.2% delicacy. You'll have to listen to find out who dumped a load of Mediterranean tonic into the gin without first tasting it and who committed the ultimate crime or using banana as a garnish. Kick back, grab a G&T and enjoy! The opening music is "London Bayou" by Oscar Albis Rodriguez and the closing music is "BDS" by Lewis Pickford.

#TBR56 - Why are we fascinated by Serial killers?
Serial killers. What is it that fascinates us about them? As soon as you see a new documentary about them on whichever streaming platform you use, you know you're going to 'just watch the one episode" then get that Netflix message asking if we're still watching at 3am. We did what Alan Partridge wanted to do "understand Man's inhumanity to Man and make a program about it". We look at some famous cases : Harold Shipman, Jack the Ripper and a couple more... and look at what they did and ask why would anyone be interested or intrigued by it. We also ask a few more questions around what we consider a serial killer to be... and what makes them. Go grab yourself a cold one, kick back and enjoy.

I'm a level 3 podcaster with a +2 mic and a pet Weasel. Dungeons and Dragons. No we don't play Dungeons and Dragons... but for 30 years we have played Fantasy role-playing games... just not D&D. We're joined by a couple of buddies to discuss this hobby. For the most part, we don't do it anymore. As Gaz has said a number of times on the podcast, we are geeks. We don't deny our geekdom, in fact in this episode, we embrace it. Go grab yourself a cold one, recuperate your hit points, kick back and enjoy!

#TBR52 Just look what you could have won (the darts episode)
Beans, Gaz and Andy are joined by friends of the show David from Double Trouble drinks to discuss their favourite pastime... darts! We talk about all things darts - from the recent world championships where we saw a new champ crowned in Gerwyn Price (who also became the new world number 1) in front of an empty auditorium to the amateur game. Darts, being a game traditionally played in pubs and social clubs has flourished in pandemic times to become a popular online game, it's been incredible to see. We look at some of the hardware (i.e. darts) and talk about a few of our favourites. Of course, we couldn't have Dave on without finding out a little about what 2021 has in store for Double Trouble drinks. Short answer : A lot!

They say there is no such thing as a bad taste in music - we do our best to dispel this myth. The songs we talk about in this episode is music that has been the soundtrack to our lives. The songs that when we hear them take us back to a time in our lives that is pertinent.

#TBR45 - Brexit!
It was a once in a lifetime vote and people came out in record numbers to have their say. Brexit. Should we stay or should we go. If it was a talking point before the vote, it was a full on argument afterwards. Everyone has an opinion on whether it's a good idea or not. Were we lied to by politicians in order to further their gains? Is it what we really wanted? Is the vote fair to the people of Northern Ireland and Scotland? What will the UK look like once we're trading by ourselves outside of Europe? Are the boys from TBR qualified to answer these questions. Of course not, but we'll have a go anyway. As always we'd love to hear your opinions too. Grab a cold sit back and relax and get ready to yell at your listening device!

#TBR44 - B.Y.O.B. Brew your own beer 🍺
It's no secret that here at TBR towers, we're a big fan of beer. We love to try every beer that is available. Even... the Duchess! Since we started this podcast, we've talked about the idea of making a Tall Boy Radio beer and in this episode, that idea moves one step closer to fruition. We're joined by Ian Palmer. He founded Bike shed brewing. It started as a hobby, then he brewed all the beer for his wedding and then decided to make the leap and get his beer in to the pubs of Staffordshire. He talks us through his journey from ambitious amateur to professional perfectionism. He seems to think it's something we could do with relative ease. We'll find out, and as Gaz is involved, you know the idea had to have a competitive element. Grab yourself your favourite cold one, sit back and enjoy.

We make no apologies for the length of this episode, it's really 2 epiaodes in one. Beans and Andy were really given the VIP treatment this week when David from Double Trouble Drinks was kind enough to let them be part of the first few to test out their latest product (which won't be available until early 2021) a blended Whisky. These guys love Whisky and they loved this one. The main episode is about cars. Beans, Gaz and Andy talk about their car history and talk about some of their favourite cars. Turns out we all have a fondness for American muscle cars. Gaz has a quick Q&A for Beans and Andy about cars from the silver screen before the guys plan their favourite road trip.

We had a lot of fun recording this episode. This week we were joined by our old pal Weave, who's been involved with every Guinness World Record attempt that we've made. We talk to him about his group C4LF's ideology and their campaign to annex Cheshire from the rest of the UK - be prepared to be entertained as El Presidente lays down his propaganda. He also talks to us about his time on the Edinburgh fringe Festival and that plants the seed for a TBR away day. Speaking of TBR, we showcase some of the Merch available on our online store in this episode - 50% of the sales of these products go to Cancer charities. 0% goes in our pockets.

There was really only 1 subject that we could talk about. This is an event that shocked the world. The one atrocity that a whole generation of people can remember and watched unfold. As an act of terror it failed because it united people against the wills of evil but a horrendous amount of people lost their life that day and many more had theirs harmed irreparably.

#TBR32 : Kenn-spiracy theories
Behind every big event in history there's a story. Behind every story there's somebody questioning it's authenticity.
